Carnevas Farmhouse dates back to the 1800s and is Grade II listed.  It sits prominently and proudly in the landscape and boasts many original features - such as moulded plaster cornices and plasterwork and a beautiful staircase with a wrought iron balustrade which is lit by a stunning feature window complete with hand painted glass depicting a farmyard scene. The farmhouse is adjacent to Carnevas Holiday Park which offers on site facilities during the holiday season including a shop and bar, which serves meals.  Porthcothan beach is just over 0.5 mile away by road, for a quieter and more scenic route, take the permissive path across farmland which links up with the South West Coastal Path.  Also located on the edge of Carnevas Farm are Nellies, Bowgie and Swallows.  All private and independent from each other; any number can be booked together for couples/families looking to holiday together but with their own spaces.

Local Area

Porthcothan Bay is another of those locations which is just waiting to be discovered and explored. Within easy reach of Padstow and St Merryn, and a short drive up the coast road from Newquay and Mawgan Porth, the sheltered, sandy bay at Porthcothan is another of the many family-friendly beaches that can be enjoyed along this part of the coastline. It is also dog-friendly all year round, and boasts picturesque cliff walks and outstanding scenery. The area around Porthcothan is also home to a wide variety of sea birds, and the cliffs are often grazed by ponies and sheep, which helps with conservation of local plant life. The nearby village of St Merryn and the town of Padstow offer an excellent choice of pubs and restaurants, in addition to the local pub, the Tredrea Inn, which hosts live bands and also has a beer garden where you can sip your drink while admiring the superb views over the bay. Porthcothan Bay is also close to the village of St Eval, where anyone, whatever your age, can have loads of fun on the Karting Circuit, and when you're done, you can visit nearby Kernow Chocolate where you will find a wide range of yummy chocolate treats!
